Joanne Rowden speaks with congregants on how Unity Spiritual Center’s mission and vision align with social justice work.  As we support each one in sharing their unique gifts in an evolving world with the vision of being love in action, honoring the Divine within all, we see our call to social justice.

Ways USC is Involved in Social Justice

Unity EarthCare Team, a ministry team of Unity Worldwide Ministries, is a program to assist congregations in integrating an earth-oriented spirituality into their ministry. Please click here for more information on our EarthCare Team.

Rev. Joanne is leading a book study using How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendri. Amazon promotes the book as "In How to Be an Antiracist, Kendi takes readers through a widening circle of antiracist ideas—from the most basic concepts to visionary possibilities—that will help readers see all forms of racism clearly, understand their poisonous consequences, and work to oppose them in our systems and in ourselves.

USC's Next Opportunity

Would you like to join USC's Social Justice Team?  We are accepting new team members.  You can request to join by clicking here.

Unity Spiritual Center is currently in conversation with Greater Cleveland Congregations (GCC), a non-partisan organization of faith communities and partner organizations in Cuyahoga County working together to build power for social justice. We are discerning whether we are in alignment with the mission of their organization and whether we would like to join them in their work. Our next step is to plan a 2-hour training with GCC to learn more about their work. We hold the intention that a minimum of 20 individuals from Unity Spiritual Center will join us for that training. If you would like to find out more, contact Rev. Joanne at Please click here to visit GCC’s website.
